Our Barn retains many of its original features and exudes character. It is simply beautiful, traditional, rustic and timeless. Flower wheels are suspended from the exposed wooden beams and it is beautifully lit with soft up-lighting and festoon lights. It is carpeted throughout, with a spacious wooden dance floor. There is a spacious fully equipped kitchen adjacent to the Barn together with an adjoining bar area and snug. We can seat up to 180 people comfortably inside the Barn, or for larger celebrations and events, you might like to add an adjoining marquee. We can also cater for smaller wedding parties. Whatever your requirements, we will always do our very best to help. You can make full use of our idyllic courtyard filled with greenery & flowers. It provides a romantic outside space for your Ceremony, offers a wonderful area for your guests to gather, and also provides the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

We have two bespoke wooden Shepherds Huts on site available to hire as accommodation, together with a beautifully converted ‘Milking Parlour’ adjacent to the Barn, often reserved as a ‘Bride’s Room’ as it is the ideal space for your Bridal party to prep.

Thank you for helping us create a truly unforgettable day
Justin and I wanted to write to thank you for our wonderful wedding. We fell in love with the barn as soon as we saw it and we knew it was where we wanted to be married. Our guests loved it too. We had lovely comments from everyone. Its such a beautiful place and Its nice to have the sole use of so much space. You were always available at the end of the phone or to reply to emails. Your recommendations and ideas were very helpful in the planning. You and your team did a fantastic job making sure everything was ready for the day. We would highly recommend our caterers- Figs from Somerton. The food was excellent, the service fantastic. Amanda was very helpful and flexible in the planning. Everyone involved helped our day run smoothly which I think is something high on every couple's list. As a result Justin and I could concentrate on enjoying ourselves and spending time with our guests. Which seemed more important than ever after the last 18 months. Thankyou again Cherry for helping us create a truly unforgettable day. Kat and Justin

If you are looking for that ‘one of a kind venue’, this is absolutely it!
There are no words to describe how beautiful a venue Stockbridge farm Barn is for anyone wanting to get married. An Idyllic setting and filled with character and authenticity. We had our wedding here, after being let down by a previous venue; and on reflection, I think they did us a favour, as we would never have stumbled across this gem in the middle of nowhere. With the perfect backdrop, beautiful weather, a stunning Grade II listed barn, fairy lights everywhere, amazing company, this will forever be a wedding to remember, by both ourselves and our guests. In the evenings, we had BB’Q’s at the Shepherds Huts with our friends and this just created a perfect rendezvous area where we all met and celebrated before and after the big day!   Cherry, the owner of the venue, could not have done more for us and our guests to make it the best day. Nothing was too much trouble for Cherry and she made sure that everyone felt welcomes, at home and happy during our stay. We have decided that we will be going back every year on our anniversary to relive the beautiful moments we shared on our special day. I can’t thank Cherry enough for letting us use the barn.  Thank you, Cherry. Lesley and Donovan Baker

Beautiful venue, highly recommend!
We would thoroughly recommend this beautiful venue for any celebration and would like to thank Cherry for all of her advice and support to help us design the wedding that we wanted. This venue is perfect for those who wish to retain flexibility as you can source your own suppliers and we had access to the Barn the day before to set it all up, which allowed us to relax and enjoy the wedding morning without jobs to do! Thank you again, Kate and Doug

Magical venue!
The venue is magical. It manages to mix both the rustic and the comfortable, it is light without losing any of its atmosphere. Everyone was delighted with how beautiful it was, and Cherry allows you to put as much of your own personal stamp on it as you like. My daughter fell in love with it as her wedding venue as soon as she saw it, and on the day I could see why. We spent a day decorating it, and by morning any mess we had inadvertently made was tidied by Cherry. The drive, the front seating area, the barn and the yard - all immaculate. And after the wonderful day, we returned to collect our personal effects to find that the barn was once more clean and tidy and we didnt have to do any of the messy work ourselves. Cherry is a lovely lady, very kind, she really couldn't have been more helpful. I would recommend the venue to anyone, and everyone, and I do! Thank you so much.

A very special place
Stockbridge Barn is a very special place and we would, without hesitation, recommend this to anyone wanting to marry in the Sherborne area. We spent a great deal of time looking at venues all over Dorset; we were interested in a rustic country wedding. When we saw Stockbridge, we knew we had found the perfect place; it has an authentic, rustic charm with enormous character, but also huge space, flexibility and a lovely surrounding area. The real clincher for us however, was the owner, Cherry. Her approach was professional, but with a light touch - she was very happy for us decide how we were going to do things, but was always there to help if we needed it. Come the day, the support she gave us was excellent throughout. in addition, her recommended bar man, Andy Langland is a must hire - again, another individual who is effortlessly professional and an enormous addition to the day; taking a lot of stress out of finding, sourcing and preparing the drinks. We have exceptionally happy memories of our day at Stockbridge, which will last a life time.

Thank you!
We just wanted to thank you for all your help in making our wedding day so special last week. The barn looked beautiful in the sun and we received so many compliments from guests for the venue. Thank you for all your help in the build up to the wedding and being so accommodating and flexible with arrangements. The caterers you recommended were excellent, particularly Fleur Provocateur for flowers and Dorset Fine Dining's food. Your tireless work before and after the wedding really allowed things to run smoothly for us. All the very best for for the future. I am sure Stockbridge will continue to be a popular wedding venue for many years to come.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

There have been so many wonderfully unique weddings - it's very difficult to choose! However two weddings stand out in recent years - one was a Medieval Banquet which was planned with great attention to detail and it felt as if we had just moved back a few hundred years in time. The other wedding was themed on 'Lord of the Rings' with all the guests arriving in the most amazing costumes. Unforgettable!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do not get hung up on unessessary detail - the main thing is that you and your partner are getting married and that everybody has a great time.
